Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Let's concentrate on getting the plain URL field in place first. That's
 something that is definitely within the scope of BP core. I have a strong
 inclination that the inclusion of specific services should be left to a
 plugin - it's not a good use of core time to come up with a list of
 services, only to bicker endlessly with users about what we have/have not
 included - but in any case, it's something we can consider after we're
 done with the base field.

 One kind of validation that might be a better candidate for core inclusion
 is a sort of regex/search-and-replace URL concatenator. As in, the admin
 could enter something like 'https://twitter.com/%%VALUE%%/' into a
 "pattern" field, and then we could have some validation that (a) detects
 whether the user-provided value is a valid URL, and if not (b) swaps it
 into the pattern. Getting the UI and logic for this to be solid would be a
 bit of work, but might be general enough to warrant inclusion in BP
